Meet Fords proposed new replacement for the soon to be withdrawn Crown Victoria. This is the Turkish built Transit Connect. The automaker said the comfortable, spacious and fuel-efficient Transit Connect was ideal for carrying people and cargo through congested city streets. "Taxis are an important part of the urban landscape, and the Transit Connect Taxi concept represents a potential game-changer, given its small footprint, comfortable, spacious interior, fuel-efficient engine and affordability," said Mark Fields, Ford's president of The Americas. "We're interested to see how people react." Well how do you feel about it then, like it, or hate it?

I can't tell from a photo how it runs or the roominess or comfort from the passenger's seats but it LOOKS ugly. Where's the checkerboard?

Roy:It's based on a van really. bit like the Fiat doblo which is popular over here, and is also built in Turkey.

Peggy: not too pretty is it, maybe they will drop the grey and make it all yellow.
